Team Akatsuti is made of four Nigerian developers:
In Nigeria, it is estimated that 20%–30% of our population are believed to suffer from mental dsorders . This is a very significant number considering Nigeria has an estimated population of over 200 million. Despite it’s high occurrence, it is still widely stigmatized and as such people are not getting the help they need.
Our aim is to create an online safe space whereNigerians can learn about mental illness, experts can volunteer to talk or treat people, with the aim of setting in motion to fully eradicate the stigma of mental illness in Nigeria.
